It was nice discovering this horse drawn sleigh activity at Christmas Land ! Even better on the snow. Plus, the brick oven pizza is awesome, and the kids enjoyed the train rides as well.

My order was received in a timely manner all the way to San Antonio TX and not one cookie was broken. Excited to place an order for Valentine’s Day.
- Andrea, 12/26/2020
We loved every minute of Christmas land. What a great way to bring back the Christmas spirit. Everyone was so nice and welcoming. We will definitely come back next year.

First there aren’t enough words to describe how awesome this place is. I first visited with my two friends and couldn’t wait to purchase a passport for my granddaughter. Due to a student in her class testing positive for COVID she could not attend. She was devastated. My husband and I went to go get her passport and I explained why she couldn’t attend they were so accommodating and gave her extra goodies in her passport. I brought it over to her and she was so excited she couldn’t wait to do the crafts and eat her cookies. She said the cookies were her favorite most of all. We are definitely bringing her here next year. Thank You so much for bringing joy to so many during such a difficult time. Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy New Year. Looking forward to next year.

We had an amazing time here today! The staff is super friendly and accommodating! (Taking pics) The Sleigh ride is so cool! Sugar cookies were spot on, I heard it’s a family recipe....
Santa was the nicest we’ve ever visited. Great with kids. It even snowed while we were there
We plan on coming back again, new tradition started!
- Melissa, 12/22/2020
Best Santa we had seen in a very long time. He commanded the time spent and asked our grandson pertinent questions plus took a great picture.
- Al, 12/22/2020
My grandkids had a wonderful time! The staff are so amazing, friendly and helpful. The kids were convinced that they met the Real Santa! I would definitely recommend.
- Jennifer, 12/22/2020
First time and it was a blast. Even in the midst of the pandemic they made this such an enjoyable kid friendly experience. We will be making this a new family yearly tradition!
- Rebecka, 12/19/2020
Delicious cookies!!! Would highly recommend! Staff was also very friendly!!
- Paul, 12/18/2020
This was such a fun experience for my family. Given the limitations of Covid the staff at Christmas Land did a great job. Everyone was so welcoming and nice, there were so many great activities for the kids, we will be back next year! 5 stars for the pizza too!
- Kaitlin, 12/18/2020
We have been going to Christmas Land for a few years and have loved making this part of our family traditions! Everyone is always so friendly and spending time with Santa is a special time for my boys! We are so grateful for all the safety protocols that were in place this year so we could continue this wonderful tradition. Thank you Santa and everyone at Christmas Land!!! Bless you all and I wish everyone a healthy and happy holiday season!! Merry Christmas!!
- Nicole, 12/14/2020
My child had An amazing time! Michelle was so nice and helpful! Every staff member could not be nicer! Santa wa a great too! Felt 100% safe and they took every safety precaution with Covid! Great job! See you next year!
- Sara, 12/13/2020
We had such a great time! Very safe while still giving us a “normal” Santa experience. Better than normal of coarse! Everyone working was so kind and helped give us that Christmas Spirit! My son will be talking about it until we come back next year! Thank you so much Christmas land!
- Marcy, 12/12/2020
We were able to visit Christmas land and the staff was amazing. They made my grandson’s visit a happy and safe one during these trying times due to Covid. Everyone was safe and yet still maintained all the magical elements of Christmas. We enjoyed the train ride. And even though it was cold and rainy we enjoyed the hot cocoa and cookies by the outdoor fire pit.
- Jean, 12/05/2020
Wow, I am SO GLAD our kids were able to do this! Santa was awesome! He spent so much time talking to and listening to them. He is the REAL DEAL.
I wasn't sure how well the virtual call was going to go when I signed up, but I was able to speak with Michelle before the call to work out the details and everything was PERFECT. The kids were so excited and impressed with Santa. It really was a magical experience and worth every penny. 10/10, would recommend!!
- Alyssa, 12/04/2020
As always an amazing Santa experience!!! I know with covid people are nervous but everyone there was wearing masks, Santa is behind a clear barrier so the kids can hear him and see his face. Santa still spent the time with each family. Frankie the train was still running for kids to enjoy. Everything was clearly marked to keep people socially distant. We definitely felt safe there and love to support local. plus the cookies are amazing and make it worth it. Even during this uncertain time I would recommend Christmas Land as your holiday destination for Santa and good, safe family fun!!!!!
- Melissa, 11/28/2020
Christmas Land was a amazing! staff went out of their way. everything was a great step into a classic Christmas. we enjoyed all of it! highly recommend
- Ed, 12/22/2019
We love this place. It just feels like Christmas. Perfect place to create those magical memories with my little one. And the cookies...buy a bunch before they sell out!
- Jackie, 12/22/2019
Really is a magical place for kids. Staff is great and seem to really love their job.
- Chris, 12/22/2019
After wasting an entire paycheck at Santa land at the North Pole this place was amazing. North poll $35 for adults to walk thru door. Christmas land ZERO. Picture with Santa at North Pole extra but not sure exact price since we never got to see him, Christmas land picture included. Employees at Santa land ALL miserable, Christmas land every single employee awesome. And am the things you get to do at Christmas land well it’s safe to say we will never ever go back to North Pole but we will make Christmas land our new yearly place to visit. Oh and they are all Notre Dame fans
- Victor, 12/21/2019
I recommend EVERYTHING about this place. From the food to the Christmas cheer. This place is a dream! The cookies are literally out of this world. I have never tasted something so good. I even went online and ordered 4 orders so I can pick them up this weekend🤪 if only it was open year round! I think this is the last weekend so be sure to get there, it will be worth it!
- Chris, 12/17/2019
Step into the holiday magic and let the spirit of Christmas embrace you! Christmas Land LLC offers so much for kids of all ages! From the sentimental Frankie the Train ride to decorating ornaments, from glazing your own cookies to riding on the horse drawn sleigh, it all feels so authentic! Nothing beats my personal favorites: the brick oven pizza and cozy little gift shop. And to top it all off, Santa is there with his amazing little elves! So thankful to Michelle Annese Bleichert and Paula Tambasco for creating such a holiday movie style experience!! We look forward to next year!!
- Vasso, 12/17/2019
Christmas Land is a “must visit” each year in our family! Santa is truly the best Santa. I love the option to reserve times and skip the line as well as the privacy of meeting with Santa without feeling rushed. We enjoy doing the horse drawn carriage ride, cookie decorating, book reading and the yummy pizzas! I love the options to do a passport or pay per activity. We look forward to this tradition each year (especially the yummy cookies!)
- Nicole, 12/15/2019
My grandson and I had a great time. The staff was so friendly the cookies were great and they have the best Santa. Looking forward to returning next year.
- Theresa, 12/09/2019
I felt like a big kid when I saw Santa! He was so sweet and wonderful with my little girl. He is the real deal! I have not seen a better Santa! My daughter had a blast with all of the crafts and the Frankie tractor ride! We will definitely come back again.
- Renee, 12/07/2019
We had THE BEST time at Christmas Land for our newest family tradition. From the nicest most genuine Santa Claus to crafts, cookie decorating, massive fire pit, adorable train ride (with special tribute and meaning), & sweetest gift shop. Every employee was joyful and excited and full of Christmas spirit. We can’t wait to go back!
- Morgan, 12/01/2019
Lots of fun for the whole family. Great during the day, then turned magical when the sun went down; the lights were just beautiful! Can’t wait to visit again next year...
- Rita, 12/24/2018
We spent 2 hours visiting Santa and doing crafts with my 3 grandchildren (4 &5 year olds). I don't think that the kids stopped smiling unless they were concentrating on the project. Thank you for a great day!
- George, 12/10/2018
Bringing back Christmas!
The sound of laughing children and sleigh bells on horses. Hot cocoa by the fire and Christmas tunes on repeat. The smell of fresh cut Christmas trees. Christmas cookies and crafts.
All brought to you with the sincere wish that you feel the holiday spirit right down to your toes by a group of people that felt they could change our corner of the world just a little - if only for the holidays.
Come on out and prove them right!
